We booked 3 rooms but were able to check into 2 rooms only because one of the rooms available had strong cigarette smell. Attending staff at the reception seemed unfeeling of our need for a smoke-free room. This is even though we approached her with our request in a non-imposing manner. We got our 3rd room only after dinner. The... More

The rooms were spacious and the sea view was excellent. Warm reception with a free welcome drink and apples placed in the room (replenished daily). Staff polite and helpful. The hotel is ideally located. Gurney Drive Hawker Centre is about 1 km away. On the way there, you will walk past Bali Hai Seafood Market & the Crepe Cottage which... More

Love the daily fruits you leave on the table and the fridge is daily stocked and on the house. Gave us the non smoking floor we requested and check in was fast. Best part it... More

We stay 3 nights in this hotel after reviewing some of the hotels in Penang. We were very happy that we were able to get a room on the 10th floor with great sea view. The location was good with short walking distance to Gurney Plaza and Gurney Paragon. The famous Gurney food stalls were just a short distance away... More

Rooms are spacious if you book yourself into a Deluxe room. You need to ensure if you want a King sized bed to notify the hotel earlier. The rooms are clean and spacious. Best if you get a sea facing room. Location wise, it is along Gurney. You will need 10 to 30 minutes (depending if you brisk walk or... More

Luxurious hotel, comfortable & clean with good facilities. Not very quiet - doors allowed to close by themselves are always audible, as is the sound of heavy feet & furniture being moved in the apartment directly above. Service was professional but short of friendly (except for one of the doormen!). Wide selection of foods for breakfast. Hotel is opposite the... More

This hotel is ok for short stay (not more than 2 days). It has strategic location (close to Gurney Drive), big and clean room and affordable price for 4th star hotel. However, the decors are outdated and need urgent renovation. We would only consider another visit after renovation
